RAMPF, Keil to design recycling plant for production of polyols
Chemical and plant construction expertise from a single source – RAMPF Eco Solutions and collaboration partner Keil Anlagenbau are leaders in the development and construction of production plants for high-quality alternative polyols.

PIRMASENS, GERMANY: RAMPF Eco Solutions, a recycling company has collaborated with Keil Anlagenbau to design a multi-functional plant for manufacturing polyols based on polyethylene terephthalate (PET), phthalic anhydride (PSA), and polyurethane (PU) / polyisocyanurates (PIR).

The plant was delivered to a leading supplier of insulation technology in Dubai, erected on site, and put into operation.

Using in-house plants and their own waste production materials, companies can manufacture their own high-quality alternative polyols. In doing so, they cut costs and contribute to the protection of the environment.

With this profitable solution that makes both economic and ecological sense, RAMPF Eco Solutions and collaboration partner Keil Anlagenbau are excelling on international markets.

By combining their core areas of expertise, the companies are able to offer a unique complete solution:

  • RAMPF Eco Solutions boasts comprehensive know-how in developing chemical solutions for manufacturing high-quality alternative polyols from PU and PET waste materials
  • Keil Anlagenbau has extensive knowledge in developing and constructing tank farms and recycling, supply, dispensing, and process engineering plants

Multi-functional design increases customer benefits

The multi-functional production plant has been designed for a leading supplier of insulation technology in Dubai and now offers the option of manufacturing high-quality polyols from the customer’s own PU/PIR waste materials. Ester polyols based on PET or PSA can also be produced in the same plant.

“With this multi-functional concept, we’re offering our customer even greater economic and environmental benefits,” said Marco Werth, director of sales & marketing at RAMPF Eco Solutions.

Alternative polyols – sustainable, cost-effective, high-quality

In two of the largest multi-functional plants in Europe at the corporate headquarters in Pirmasens, Germany, tailored ether and ester polyols are manufactured from:

  • Industrial and post-consumer PU waste materials (from flexible to rigid foams)
  • PET / PSA

The company, which is part of the international RAMPF Group, has also developed a chemical process that makes it possible to use PET / PSA, other polyesters such as polylactide (PLA), polycarbonate (PC), and polyhydroxy butyric acid (PHB), and renewable or bio-based raw materials such as vegetable oils as sources of raw materials for manufacturing high-quality alternative polyols.

“For over 20 years, our research teams have been developing high-quality alternative polyols,” said Matthias Rampf, managing director of RAMPF Eco Solutions.
